    Is it possible to use the CoverFlow control to display items otehr than images; UI elements for example? (I've seen several blog posts on other sites saying it is supported, but cannot find any documentation or info other than for using image files.)

    To give you an idea of what i'd like to achieve; one example is to use the CoverFlow control to allow users to browse online reports. I have created a simple control that will display summary information in a dashboard/grid. I'd like to use the coverflow control in the report header to allow the viewer to browse through these dashboards. When they select one it will then display detailed information in the report body for that item.

    Can the CoverFlow control currently support this sort of thing? If so, is there any documentation on how to achieve it please?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Jonathan,

    RadCoverFlow supports any Silverlight UIElement as content. Actually, you could think of it as a regular ListBox and use it as such. For example, in the following demo we put an UserControl in the ItemTemplate of the control:
